See also: Crafting 101.

A Crafting Station allows players to craft various items. Entering the inventory screen displays the crafting menu in the lower-left, and when the player is standing near one of more Crafting Stations and possesses the right crafting ingredients, the bar is expanded with additional item choices. Nearly all crafting stations are furniture.
